Price Point

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

These headphones sound great and are very affordable, but just know what you are getting. If you're looking for some great sounding headphones to listen to around your house using a headphone amp, these would be a great buy. But if you're looking for something to take to the gym, or use at work you'll probably want to look elsewhere. Pros - Excellent sound quality

Hifiman HE400i

(1/1)

I noticed that these were up for sale on one of our local headphones online stores, was most intrigued by the price, and decided to grab one to try (I’m located in Southeast Asia and Google conversion states they were selling for approximately $140USD).

Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

Hifiman HE400i

(1/5)

I know my untrained ears will not be able to differentiate the sound quality, still good recommendation will be helpful.

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Hifiman HE400i

(1/1)

I just got to try the Hifiman HE400i 2020 version and I think it's tied with the Cloud Orbit for two the most comfortable headphones I've ever tried.

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

Warranty

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

Customer service is not amazing. Warranty is nothing special. Oh, and the stock cable is a cable. It's not great

Hifiman HE400i

(1/1)

Didn't bump anything, didn't mishandle in any way, just came undone. They advertise a 1-year warranty but if you go to hifiman.com/services their listed customer service number forwards to a different phone's voicemail after 5 rings. Very disappointed with HI-FI man

Durability

Hifiman HE400i

(1/1)

I know there is a warranty, but I dont want to end up with a 'refurbished' one that probably had a worse defect/malfunction and wont last long before it breaks again.
